Tagging Terminated EC2 Instances

Question asked by Colton Pepper Employee on Aug 17, 2017

I created an asset tag through Asset Search where I set the Tracking Method to "EC2" and the EC2 Instance status to "TERMINATED" and clicked "Create Tag". After noticing I had only a couple instances with this tag, when there should have been well over 1,000, I saw that the tag isn't even working because the status field isn't even listed in the rule engine.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<TAG_CRITERIA>
<TRACKING_METHOD>INSTANCE_ID</TRACKING_METHOD>
</TAG_CRITERIA>

Is there a feature request to have this added? Is this something that is broken? I'm really surprised that there isn't a field we can use in AssetView to look for EC2 instances that have been terminated because it would be great to view for metrics or dashboards. Not just terminated but any status for that matter...
